Post Coronavirus Closes 5 Hyundai Factories.

SEOUL: The most productive car factory in the world fell quiet on Friday as South Korea's Hyundai suspended operations at its giant Ulsan complex, hamstrung by a lack of parts with the coronavirus outbreak crippling China's industrial output.

The five-plant network can make 1.4 million vehicles annually, in a coastal location facilitating importing components and exporting cars globally.

But supply lines are crucial in an ever more interconnected worldwide economy and the coronavirus outbreak in China has seen Beijing order factories closed in several areas as it seeks to contain the epidemic.


As a result, Hyundai -- which with its affiliate Kia ranks as the world's fifth-largest auto manufacturer -- has run out of the wiring harnesses that connect vehicles' complex electronics.

It is having to suspend production at its factories across South Korea, putting 25,000 workers on forced leave and partial wages, healthy victims of the disease outbreak across the Yellow Sea.

My company has an office in China, the staff haven’t been back to work since CNY, with no end in sight.
If everything goes back to normal tomorrow it could take 6-12 months for global shipping to catch up. Shipping rates have increased.
I give it 2 months and Bunnings will have empty shelves from certain suppliers.

This is interesting. We're already behind when it comes to the stink big and now this. We've got cars that were due in December and it's now February with the latest is that these vehicles wont' start arriving until March! When you're talking about roughly 60 cars from just one dealer group, things are going to get hectic and customers don't won't to hear excuses!

I'm surprised it took this long for something like this to happen.

Well good riddance. The fewer of these Kia’s and Hyundai’s are made the better. Their forced closure due to China’s problems shows how much of a Korean car’s components are actually chinese lol

This is much bigger than just Kia and Hyundai stopping production.

Every day this virus is costing the world Billions.

Our reliance on China means sooner or later following current trends this will effect almost every person on the planet in some way.

Many of the really big and famous / popular Chinese restaurants in Sydney CBD are empty and closed or close to it.

Tourism industry on its knees. Important and export of food greatly effected, global offices closed because China isn't trading.

I bet the deaths and infections reported are a fraction of reality in typical Chinese style.

If a cure is 12 months away as predicted we are all royally screwed.

Storm in a tea cup? Just like swine flu, bird flu, sars, Y2K etc.
Fuelled by the financially struggling media who rely on click bait head lines that shock or induce fear.
With the help of social media prompting politicians to put half arsed measures in place to show they are doing something (to avoid what Morrison went through last month).

Eye brows should raise at our reliance on China. Their cooperations incentivised by their govt buying up land and companies for primary industry production, food and dairy.
When they have us by the balls in controlling what food we get, who knows what crap is served up on the shelves in Coles etc that come from China or out of their owned and operated factory farms.
Any biosecurity, animal welfare and food safety regulations are going to mean SFA if that is the case.

With the demise of the local butcher, and the probability we have most meat and dairy being sourced from the Chinese with questionable and unknown standards, perhaps veganism will take off.
Leftist millennials are more worried about changing the date, not offending a transgender, or buying an electric car and making virtuous posts on social media so they can change the weather.
Personally I'd be looking to becoming self sufficient from acreage.

Give it a week or two and some scientists in the pocket of the UN and the click bait media will link this to climate change.

The Chinese really are hygenically filthy. Is it any surprise these outbreaks happen there? There food quality standards are pretty much none existent. Using human excrement as fertiliser for example.

We probably sell our good quality food to them, and take their filthy garbage food back by the boatload. We really are a stupid country sometimes.

Came through Melbourne today and apart from a few flights from NZ and the US everything else was from Singapore or Hong Kong which look to have all Chinese on, wearing their face masks. So buggered if I know how serious they are securing the boarder.

I was just doing some figures, 1.4 Billion \ whats the average life expectency 75? = 18.6 Million people should be dying each year, which is 51 THOUSAND people dying in China every day. 100 Dying per day from this Caronavirus isnt really that much really if you think about it!

After a bit of fooling around with google it seems that around 9 million die each year on average in China.

Still, that's 24,657 per day.

I think deaths from Corona are grossly under reported. I wonder how many of these deaths have been listed as something similar to corona just to try and dull the public fear of what is going on.

maybe you are right, this site has been reporting on "daliy deaths" , and much more. on feb 12th, the death rate spiked, to more than double the earlier , daliy death rate. check the charts out, its an eye opener (holy ****e). cases are now over 60,000.

This is a massive spanner in the works of the global economy - if not worse. Virus is reported to be able to survive on surfaces for 5 days, maybe 9 days?

Check out the Lancet for peer-reviewed papers on it. Highly infectious.

I'm going to qualify that massive spanner, it's actually quite lethal to the flow of goods produced for JIT delivery for multiple high-end products that are made in many countries and then further exported. The lowest bidder for part manufacture has just been taken out. 400 million on lockdown? Crazy.

Lucky for Australia, we have a domestic car industry with mandated 95% local content, we'll be fine. Hang on, it's not 1969 any more... D'oh.

Hope you all have everything you need. I'm stocked up on models. glue and paints, time to fire up the airbrush and

Don't just think this vile consumption is only related to China/Chinese. Look closer to home. It's just as bad, or worse, just 2000 km's away from our shores.

WARNING: This story contains images and descriptions that some people may find distressing.

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-02-...ption/11924514

And other countries that surround us that also have a similar appetite are South Korea, The Philippines, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia. We are surrounded by possible Coronavirus hot spots.

Yep & may Krsna help them if it takes off in India.

JP Morgan's clever research analysts have tracked Chinese industrial production by measuring coal consumption; , their results detailed here:

https://www.zerohedge.com/economics/...-case-scenario

"here is JPMorgan showing that while traditionally daily coal consumption - the primary commodity used to keep China electrified - rebounds in the days following the Lunar New Year collapse when China hibernates for one week, this year there hasn't been even a modest uptick higher, indicating that so far there hasn't been even a modest uptick in output."

"Conveniently there is a way to track rudimentary traffic patterns across some of China's key metro areas, and they show that - in a confirmation of the worst-case scenario - activity, as measured by travel, across most of China appears to have ground to a halt."

And to appeal to the 14 year old mind that lurks within:

You only have to travel a couple of hours outside any of the major Chinese cities to see the real China, and the Chinese delicacies available to be purchased - if you know where to go. I have video recorded my experiences on my phone. It's disgusting - to say the least.

And yes, I have been to China. Many times.
